Massachusetts' Defeater just premiered a brand new music video for the song "Bastards" on Vevo. Directed by Rob Soucy, the "Bastards" video is a short film themed around the concept of Defeater's Letters Home. It is a narrative period piece from a foreign war, and the plot revolves around the main character who was ambushed in a small camp. Watch the video for "Bastards" here.

"Bastards" is the first single off of Defeater's newest album Letters Home, which was released earlier this year on Bridge Nine. Letters Home features powerfully intricate guitar instrumentation, colossal-sounding drums, and Defeater vocalist Derek Archambault's voice sounding more ferocious than ever before. These ten new tracks are heavy and haunting, while lyrically poignant and continuing the story of a working class family living in post-WWII America. Letters Home debuted at #72 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts and was called “a striking album from one of punk’s most valuable bands, and one that rewards repeated listening” by Rock Sound magazine.

Defeater is currently out on the road in North America supporting August Burns Red through December, then will head over to the UK and Europe for a headlining run early next year. The tour will see Defeater headlining in the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK, Germany, Hungary, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland.
